Not the biggest fan of Bobby McGee. 116 versions in a roughly 4 year period is a bit too much for me when the song doesn't vary too much from one version to the next, and doesn't allow much room for jamming. I certainly enjoy the song, but I don't feel the need or desire to hear over 100 different versions of a relatively short tune. It's one of the few songs I can't recall any standout versions, and I'll gladly take a recommendation of a great one if anyone is able to do so.

I'm not a huge of of the song either. It's been sandwiched into The Other One several times, but I don't know if it helped either song. I think 5/3/72 in Paris might be the best of these.

I prefer the 1971 renditions myself. Don't know if I would consider any of these great, but 7/2/71 and 11/7/71 are pretty nice. And the 12/5/71 Felt Forum performance, though not flawless, is pretty neat, with some gorgeous jangly guitar tones and a sweet and smokey Garcia solo...
